Todays lyrics, wellt hird line of this song are:'And maybe we'll come back'
Why: My first run since last Thursday
Enjoyed Stornoway back on late Monday, very busy since
My last day as a Civil Servant after 24.5 Years tomorrow.
Catch up time.
Nice to know I was missed
I did get some withdrawl symptoms, like when travelling up at 5:05 am to Ullapool an d thinking about 6am I 'm usually starting DT about now...
Came back witha pile of about 14 running mags (My brother in Law passed them on) and even a Triathlon one ! Good read even though 'I swim like a brick' and thats being kind
Read 'The Dirtiest Race Ever' Book. The Story of 1988 Seoul Olympics Mens 100m. A cracking read and very enjoyable. Hope it comes out in paperback
Morning birks - good to have you back. Sounds as though you had a good break. Any plans work wise after tomorrow?
Blisters - did you stuff your marrow?
Yesterday's lyrics were Do You Have A Little Time by Dido.
It's dry here and forecast to remain that way all day, this makes the sensible option of swimming today much less attractive so:
What: easy run (hopefully)Why: I want toLast hard: still the groundLast rest: 24/9
Lyrics - no.
birks - must admit I looked at that book in the library the other day so may get it next visit on that recommendation.
After attacking myself with Echinacea, multi-vitamins and vicks first defence i'm actually feeling less cold like today! Hooray
Just going to take it easy today. No run and possibly no swim. I know iI really shouldn't go but enjoyed it so much last week! This taper lark is like having a devil on one shoulder and an angel on the other. It's a fine line trying to satisfy both!
Points taken on the sports massage. I'll ask him to take it easy on my lower half.
Really got the pre-race buzz at the moment.
What: RestWhy: TaperLast hard: 16/09Last rest: Tuesday

Hi everyone. First time posting in one of these threads.
What: 5 mile Home Run routeWhy: Haven't run this route before and it gets me home from work with my bag carried for me! Also my only run of the week before Bristol HM on Sunday...Last Hard: SundayLast Rest: Tuesday
Lyrics sound familiar but I can't place them.
Ooh Pammie, now I'm desperate to check the post when I get home!! It's my first time entering the VLM ballot, expect my chances are about as high as being picked in the Hunger Games reaping.
Pammie I thought VLM were out in October? I hope they email me as my address has changed...
LMH how's the leg/ankle?
What: 10km ish with clubWhy: club nightFound another club to join on a different night. May go to 2 for a while, see which one I like best (or just stick with the 2 either way, they offer very different training).
Have a good one all.
OPR - you would probably be ok with the swim as long as you don't think it will affect your chances of developing that cold.
emzap - to be honest, not 100% and that, combined with the difficulty running yesterday, the fact that I'm far more tired than I should be, that my throat is sore and I want to do my last 20 miler on Sunday has convinced me to take a second rest day today. No swim, no nothing beyond walking the dog - hopefully in the dry.
Georginagem - Welcome to the thread. Hope you have good news re the ballot
emzap yes October but they usually send them out a bit early if you don't hear anything (Are you getting your mail redirected) give them a call/email
Ended up just shy of 3 miles 2.96 miles little quicker than planned hopefully still be ok tomorrow
Evening you lot
Cheesr for welcomes back.
onepace: Read it its very informative.
Tom: Yeah that books an interesting read too. Might have a read of it again sometime soon
LMH: I might have some news re a 6 mth contract for my current job quite soon.
well a good day all round....
Get home and have an acceptance letter from VLM... this after saying I would never do it again...... but still want to have a good run there something not yet done in the previous 6 attempts ranging from 3:43 to 3:58... when current PB is 3;13.....
Then Club Champs tonight.... Jnr and I in the same event.... 1st and 4th, do I really need to say who came 1st..... with a stonking time of 4:54..... then the older one (me) came home in 5:39 (85, 86, 85, 81) to claim 1st vet (and 1st snr) as most of the fast ones did not show
6.5m this morning and some warm up / cool dow miles means 10m for the day....
